Staying for awhile

When I got to Ft. Augustus it was very clear it was a tourist town. I arrived in my hitchhiker vehicle and had him drop me off in the center of town. It was still raining and I was very wet and cold and hungry. I looked around for a suitable lunch spot, took a couple of pictures of the locks and made a decision to have lunch at the Neuk. It looked …

Off For Some Nessie and Highland Coo (Cow) Spottin

A travel blog entry by paulandcarolyn


A snowy/frosty night last night had us a bit worried about our trip north but the weather reports were promising. After removing the frost from the car, we headed north to Falkirk to visit the Falkirk Wheel which had to be seen to be believed. It is basically a huge boat lift that links the Clyde and Forth Canal with the Union Canal.  We drove …

Arisaig Hotel

A HelpX assignment on the Atlantic coast near the Isle of Rhum (Rum) and Eigg (Egg). Josh and Sophie have taken on this hotel and they are approaching their second season, expecting their second child, and frantically doing up the Hotel as well. Josh's mum and dad, Mike and Shelia are also there most days all day pitching in. Both very talented people with tools and a sharp eye for detail.

Loch Lochy

A travel blog entry by jamesandbre


... sections which play 5minute films in each room, of how investigations of the Loch Ness monster occurred, the geography of the loch, the hoaxes and destroyed anyone's hope that there is some form of creature out there! At the end there was a few information boards and straight into the souvenir shop, we thought it would have filled in a few hours. So we found a walking track along the loch and wandered along, finding a nice spot for some lunch and lucky us the sun came out :) ...

    I've stayed in several B&B's and hotels so far and not one has a working heater in the room. Maybe they used to work? The towel warmers also seem to be there for decoration...

    I arrived a day early for my reservation and the staff was gracious enough to find me accommodation. I had to take a double room, so it cost me more, but it was worth it to have a spot. The room is clean and there is hand soap! Another thing that seems to be missing from the other places I've stayed. The shower ran hot, lukewarm, bordering on cold, then lukewarm. The staff is very friendly.
